Problem running Manager on Win 7

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem. hostname, LOCALHOST is not resolved, I have added a screenshot of the error, this has never happened when loading/ running any other program, I have even tried repairing windows and then downloading Manager again, same result.
I am running Windows 7 ultimate.

The error reads,
ERROR: Your hosts file (C:\Windows\systems32\drivers\etc\hosts) appears to be corrupted because hostname LOCALHOST is not resolved to

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Can you open C:\Windows\systems32\drivers\etc\hosts and paste the content of this file in here?

Thanks Lubos, this is it.

::1 localhost local

Remove this line from your hosts file. localhost

Then restart your computer. That should fix the issue.

Will give it a go.

Sorry I took so long but had to change administrator settings before I could change the file.
I have now changed and rebooted but still the same error message.
Any more ideas?

try removing the ::1 localhost line as well

Thanks Suohryn, I changed it to a comment line (#) and that has done the trick.
Still no idea why I had to make these changes, all other programs work fine.
Once again I would like to thank Lubos and Suohryu for helping so fast and so positively.
